Pasta with Olio Nuovo

Mar 16, 2021 | Recipe, Entree

Pasta with Olio Nuovo Olive Oil

Serves 3-4



Bring a large pot of fresh water to boil and drop the pasta into the pot.  Add a bit of salt and stir to ensure the pasta doesn’t stick together. (linguine usually takes between 7-10 minutes, depending on the brand).

While the pasta cooks, add a few tablespoons of Olio Nuovo olive oil to a medium-sized pan along with the garlic and saute slowly. Add Sea salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (slowly cook for another 2-5 minutes).  Add in the chopped tomatoes and let them warm. You don’t want to cook them down. 

Drain the pasta and save a bit of the starchy water. Add the pasta to the pan along with the basil and mix well. Add more Olio Nuovo olive oil to coat the pasta. If you need to loosen it up a bit, add a little reserved pasta water.

Add the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and mix one more time. Plate the pasta and add a little bit more cheese. 

Simple, classic, and packed with flavor! Serve with some crusty bread.

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
